Pacific Fund Scholarships and Grants

The Pacific Fund supports University of the Pacific's goals and mission by providing vital financial aid and Pacific Fund Grants which are a direct result of the generous support from alumni, parents, employees, students and friends. Every gift to the Pacific Fund goes directly towards student access and academic innovation. Pacific Fund Grants support hands-on learning by funding experimental learning opportunities, scholarship and research for students, faculty, and staff from all of the schools and college within the University. Opportunities include a wide variety of projects such as research assistantships, study abroad, field work, academic travel, research expenses and other hands-on learning initiatives. 

This year $200,000 in Pacific Fund Grants are available thanks to the support of last year's generous donors. As the Pacific Fund grows we will be able to provide even more support to students who are doing unique and amazing things here at Pacific.

Grants can be used for activities such as academic travel, competition fees, research funding, professional conferences, workshop fees and more. Each division and college sets the requirements on grant allocation, eligibility, application procedures and deadlines. Grants are distributed in varying amounts and are a request-for-proposal process. Funds are distributed through the Undergraduate Research Task Force, Student Life Division, and school and college Dean's Offices.
